Peddler displaying work at Whyte’s Framing and Gallery

Students in her classes can choose to paint on masa paper or remain devoted to traditional methods.

Judi Pedder will present her work in Whyte’s Framing and Gallery, where many of her paintings receive their professional presentation.

Beginning her training in the U.K., Judi has spent years working to learn ‘the Magic of watercolour’ to obtain the variety of approaches she uses to portray her chosen subjects.

Recently invited to join the Botanical Artists of Canada, she got some of her work accepted into their annual juried show in November in Toronto).

She’s often told, “You are known for your flowers,” which are mostly offered in strong, vibrant colours. In fact, clients choose almost as many of her landscapes — of England and Canada — east to west.

Her work on masa paper is well-known through shows and workshops so she had a DVD produced with which to share her ideas further afield. Students in her classes can choose to paint on masa paper or remain devoted to traditional methods.

Another avenue Judi is exploring is painting with dye on silk and, of course, her “file in waiting” is, well, waiting!

Pedder’s artwork will be displayed Oct. 2 to 15 at Whyte’s. A meet-and-greet happens Oct. 4 from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m.

Whyte’s Framing and Gallery is at 1225 Lazo Rd. in Comox. For details, phone Phil Whyte at 250-339-3366.
